The Burst Link Venator falling into Tatooine's atmosphere and burning up on entry. The Burst Link Venator deployed onto a mission on Tatooine to surprise attack the Revanites before they could get any foothold in their next assault. All was going well until Revan jumped out of hyperspace with his massive fleet, easily overwhelming the Burst Link's defenses. Revanite Shay fought on the ground, killing Jedi Master Storm, and a poetic ESU named Scraps, who stood up to Shay and was quickly slaughtered. Then Vic entered the fight, fighting against Shay only to be thrown off the bridge, barely holding on. While the droids advanced into the troopers, who were back-to-back shoulder-to-shoulder fighting back, Mercy launched onto the bridge with her jetpack. She stood against Shay, calling out to him. She told him that he has done enough, and that the lives that he's taken will be avenged. Vic threw his vibroblade up from his hanging-position and Mercy caught it. She revealed that her true name was Koriand'r Stratton, and that she'd stop Shay. They fought, but it was apparently clear that 'Koriand'r' was never trained, or if so, did not complete her training. Shay was overpowering her completely in the fight, and her vibroblade was disarmed, spiraling down off the bridge to the depths below. Shay ignited his saber as he stood in front of Mercy and looked down to his sister, preparing to strike. He lifted his saber and said that no Jedi could defeat him. Suddenly, nearby, a man called out "I am no Jedi!" and Lord Cole jumped into battle, Shay barely being able to turn around in time to stop Cole's strike. Shay desperately pushed Koriand'r off the bridge with the force, trying to divert Cole's attention, but to no avail. Now, the tables have turned, and Shay was at the disadvantage, fighting against Cole but being completely outmatched. He was finally backed up to the edge of the bridge and stepped back. Cole shouted out: "This is where you threw off the weak! It is fitting, isn't it? This is where you will die." Shay looked down, and took off his mask ,smiling. "Yeah, guess so." He said sarcastically, falling off to land onto a Revanite ship just below, and take off as the troopers were being overwhelmed. Cole moved on to find Mercy, but the troopers were surrounded. Overwhelming numbers crushed them in, tightening their formations like a vice. The Clone Advisor's voice broke through as the Venator crumbled in the sky. He came in on a cruiser and told the troopers to jump if they wanted to live. They jumped into the cruiser and were forced to leave, but General Resh spent his last action pushing a recruit down onto the cruiser, being shot in the back. The Clone Advisor couldn't wait to see if Resh was on the ship, and kept going. Resh was left behind. The Current Situation The troopers of the Burst Link, now without a place to call home, are trapped on Tatooine, with no means of escape. The Revanite fleet remains in orbit, looking for them. They exist on a small abandoned military base. They must act as insurgents now, as they are at the severe disadvantage. Moving on to OOC: For 24 hours, basically just Sunday, the troopers will be stuck on Tatooine as Revanites blockade the planet completely. They truly have no where to go, and are stuck there. That is not to say no events will happen, but life as the troopers know it will be very much different. The base there is not as big as the Venator, and the surrounding map is also very interesting. IRP, the outside of the military base is very dangerous. Who knows who wanders Tatooine's deserts? Revanite patrols? Bounty hunters? Tuskan raiders? Creatures? Anything could jump out. As for inside the base, noone should be allowed to leave unless told by a high ranking individual (COs), or by CG they can leave. No specific battalions will have any bunks, everyone will have to share for just one day, as they are literally packed in like sardines at that point. Events Any EMs who would like to do events can switch map, but only switch map to maps that are sandy, and/or make sense with Tatooine. God Anakin would hate this. Small "on-ship" events would be used as collecting materials from the vault or the town that is on that map. For this time, the Revanites are an enemy that any EM can use. Just don't do events that involve Revan/Shay/any big characters. Ideas for events would include getting communication arrays to call for aid with the Republic fleet, as you are trapped with no help. You could also go get supplies, or go visit mos eisley/other tatooine cities to talk to the locals and see if smugglers/bounty hunters can help you. There is really a whole ton you can do. I plan to do at least two events for it tomorrow so I can help people make this smoooooth. Questions and General Info: If you have questions, PLEASE ask. I'm sure I'm missing alot of things. Basically this is a free roam in the base, any areas that should be off-limits can be decided in an RP way and then textscreens permapropped and shite. If the map accidentally gets switched off because people are stupid, the maps name is rp_cscdesert_v2-1_propfix. I implore you all to just try this out. It's only for a day, so if you don't like it, it'll be switched back eventually. This is so we all have a very immersive experience after IRP we just got fucking smashed by the Revanites' fleet. Any EMs should definitely ask specific questions regarding this, but otherwise, players, if you have any, just ask and I will answer when I wake up (Since it's 4am at the time of me writing this).
